RECYCLING 6.5 BILLION BOTTLE CAPS.
INEOS partners with Forever Plast to recycle over 6.5 billion bottle caps back into high quality caps
For a while PET bottles were increasingly recycled into other things from composites to clothes, but this is one of the first circular developments to tackle bottle caps.
Over the next five years an incredible 6.5 billion bottle caps will be diverted from the waste stream, landfill or ending up in our seas. Instead they will be recycled and blended with a new, highly engineered virgin polymer, called Recycl-In™ from INEOS, to be made back into new high-quality bottle caps.
It’s a major step forward. We are creating a truly circular approach to make sure used bottle caps are recycled and reused rather than being thrown away or wasted.
INEOS Olefins & Polymers is working with Forever Plast SpA, a leading polymer recycling technologies operator in Italy. This development is part of INEOS’s ongoing research and development program to move to a more circular approach to plastic production to support customers globally.
We are not just waiting for things to happen, we are making things happen. Recycling 6.5 billion caps from bottles is an incredible achievement. We are providing real commercial solutions today for our customers, moving to a more circular approach to plastics, giving waste plastic a value and preventing it from ending up in the environment. Our people are passionate about tackling this issue.
